Hey from VA!!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone, I'm Devon and I recently purchased a Masterbuilt 30" electric this past weekend. I was born and raised in NE ND and grew up hunting and fishing. The only smoking I have attempted prior to this was back home in an old revamped fridge I converted to a smoker which I used primarily for deer sausage. I have been living in VA now for 4 years and just recently got back to trying some smoking. I tried my first backstrap in the smoker from a couple of deer I snagged with the bow and brought back from Gods Country "North Dakota"!!xrocker.gif It turned out surprisingly good but I had some good tips from this great site. I currently have a 3lb venison roast in the smoker so I will post some QVIEW if I'm not to ashamed!!

Well I'm as far from an expert as they come but here is what I did and it turned out pretty good. I pulled the membrane off and trimmed it up to just meat. I didn't want to marinate it for a day because i was excited to use the new smoker so I injected it with worchestier  sauce and wrapped it in bacon and put in the smoker at 275 until the internal temp reached 145 and it turned out great by my standards, considering it was my first one.

First off welcome to SMF there Devon. You'll really like this place for there are a bunch of really good folks here that would just love to help you with just about anything to do with smoking meat. Then if you have any questions you just post them here or yu can try in chat for a faster answer. If you are really new to all of this I would recommend that you look up and take the e-course. It is free and it will also give you the basics on smoking. So with all that said now go and get something to smoke.
